Lockdown Photography Competition

Lockdown Photography Competition

Lockdown 2 got you feeling blue? We might just have a remedy to put a positive spin on the current situation!

During the first lockdown, our local green and blue places became vital places of refuge, reflection and positivity as we got used to new ways of living, working and socialising. As we enter a second national lockdown, we want to celebrate those new relationships that communities up and down the catchment have been developing with their local rivers and give something back to our struggling local independent retailers through a new photography competition.

The idea is simple – head out for your daily exercise and snap a picture of your favourite spot on your local river. Upload it to social media with a bit about why your river means something to you and tag us and your nominated local business for a chance to win £20 to spend with them when the restrictions are lifted!

Good luck, get out and get snapping! Please see below for full terms and conditions.
